| This step does not serialize the result document. Any serialization
| parameters specified on a xsl:output element inside the stylesheet are
| ignored. Further, the output on the result port must be a well-formed XML
| document; transformations that use non-XML output methods (e.g. the 'text'
| method) may cause a dynamic error.
| "
| Is a solution. There are certainly use cases where one may need text output
| or (especially!) HTML output. XProc should answer those uses cases somehow.

We (now) have serialization controls to handle these cases.

We have no plans to address non-XML outputs in any detail in V1.
